Lady Amelia Windsor parents: The Instagram royal’s relatives | Life | Life & Style

In Life & Style


Lady Amelia Windsor is related by blood to Queen Elizabeth II, and is an heir to the throne.

Born on August 25, 1995, Lady Amelia boasts the royal claim that her grandfather, Edward Duke of Kent, is cousin to the Queen.

It is said Lady Amelia joined Meghan Markle, the fiancée of Prince Harry, recently at the Queen’s Christmas lunch.  

Also known as Mel on her Instagram account, the 22 year old was named “the most beautiful member of the royal family” by Tatler magazine in 2016.

But who are Lady Amelia’s parents? 

Lady Amelia’s father is George Windsor, Earl of St Andrews, a former diplomat who is now Trustee of the SOS Children’s Villages UK charity.

He is also a Patron for the Association of International Cancer Research. 

Lady Amelia’s mother is Sylvana Palma Windsor, Countess of St Andrews, who was born Sylvana Tomaselli.

She is known professionally as Dr Sylvana Tomaselli, as she is a historian at the University of Cambridge. 

George Windsor holds his Earl title “by courtesy”, which means he essentially uses one of his father’s numerous titles rather than holding a substantive title himself. 

Educated at Eton College and Downing College, Cambridge, he married Sylvana Tomaselli – a divorcée – at a register office in Edinburgh in 1988.

Sylvan was born in Newfoundland, the most easterly province of Canada.

She was educated in both Canada and England before moving to the UK for good. 

Lady Amelia was educated at St Mary’s School Ascot, and now reads French and Italian at Edinburgh University. 

Lady Amelia Windsor’s Instagram account boasts thousands of followers – unsurprising, considering she models for fashion label Dolce & Gabbana.

She has two siblings: an older brother and an older sister.

Her brother is Edward Windsor, Lord Downpatrick, and is aged 27.

Her sister is Lady Marina Charlotte Windsor, aged 25.
